This appetizer reminds me of the 80’s! It was a popular dish back then, - always made with cream cheese. Thank the heavens for yogurt cheese. For anyone not familiar with yogurt cheese, or dripped yogurt it is sometimes called, all you do is line a large sieve with a coffee filter, put on top of a bowl, pour in your yogurt, and cover with plastic wrap. Refridgerate 24 hours or longer, all the liquid drips into the bowl, and you are left with a thick delicious yogurt cheese. I make yogurt cheese often, for any dish that calls for cream cheese.
1 cup yogurt cheese
2 heaping Tblsp. Mayonnaise
1 green onion finely diced
1 minced garlic clove
salt and pepper to taste
gluten free seafood cocktail sauce (in Canada, Heinz Seafood Cocktail Sauce is gluten free)
fresh cooked baby shrimp
In a bowl, mix the yogurt cheese, mayonnaise, green onion, garlic, salt and pepper. Once mixed, spread out flat in a serving bowl. Top with a generous amount of cocktail sauce, and smooth over the top of the yogurt cheese.
Cover with a generous amount fresh cooked shrimp, and serve with gluten free crackers.
